A bit about me
My name is Ellen and I am a 30 something stay at home mum of 4 energetic, loud and chaotic kids. My babies are 5, 4, 2.5 and 1yr - so at one point I had 4 kids, 4yrs and under and yes, I am generally exhausted and out of patience. I have spent the last 7 years pregnant or breastfeeding my babies (or both at the same time) , and throughout my late teens and 20s I spent my days nannying for babies and toddlers around Sydney and my nights studying for a career I ultimately spent little time working in. I have spent the bulk of my adult life focused on the care and development of kids. What has this taught me? No one is an expert on babies and kids. Each child is different. Each baby will sleep differently and like to be settled differently. Each mum will experience motherhood differently. Read lots, listen to other people's ideas when they are offered, but be prepared to through it all out the window and back yourself. Each of us knows our kids best and we are all doing the best we can for them.
I have started this blog, as many mums do, as a way to document my day to day and maybe share a few ideas I've picked up along the way for entertaining kids at home. Please feel free to reach out and get in touch if you have any questions or would like me to do a post on something of interest.
